1997 Ford Escort Q&A

1997 Ford Escort Question: Transmission

Does a 1998 ford escort sport 2 door trans. fit into a 1997 ford escort sport 4 door -
Answer 1
It it a manual or automatic trans? -
Comment 1
It is a manual. -
Comment 2
The only way to tell if it will fit is to lay them side by side to check the length and the spline count ( input shaft spline and output shaft spline ) because in 1997 there was two different engine options and in 1998 only one engine was offered. -
Comment 3
How about the bolt pattern -
Comment 4
yes double check the bolt pattern and any plugs or switches just to make sure its the same -
Comment 5
Thanks for the help. I'll let u know what happens. -
